Turkish pharmaceutical exports rose 32 percent last year, compared with 2017, Turkish Health Minister Fakhreddin Gog said Friday.

In a statement, Goja said that the development of local medicines, one of the ministry's most important strategies, had achieved significant success.

Turkish pharmaceutical exports rose from $890 million in 2017 to $1.17 billion in 2018, up 32 percent, he said.

He said this was due to increased research and development expenditures in the production of medicines, as well as turkey's membership of the International Drug Control Federation on January 1, 2018.

They wanted to further improve local success in the manufacture of high-quality medicines and export them abroad.
